Frederick Buckendorff went home to the Lord on Thursday, January 7, 2021, at the age of 80. He was predeceased by his son, Matthew. He is survived by his daughter Lauren, son-in-law Christopher, and grandchildren Liam, Teddy, and Grace. His smile and laughter will be missed by all who knew him.

He was a beloved professor of math and computer science at Kutztown University for over 30 years. He was married to Kyle Sabatino for 26 years and had children Lauren and Matthew. He spent his last 5 years with his caring friend, Judy Orazio. Fred was an avid golfer his entire life, and he was never happier than when he was out on the links. He was a special man, always ready with a smile or joke, and his charm, charisma, and bright personality will forever be missed.

My brother Fred was taken from his family too soon.
The family and I are grieving his loss but we know he is in a better place than we are at this time.
Fred is safe with God and is joined by members of the family that have gone on before and welcomed him with Joy and Open Arms.
We will always love him, remembering his wit and charm and he'll be in our hearts forever.
Rest in Peace my dear brother.

Fred had been on my mind a lot recently because of the loss of my son James. I played many rounds with Fred and greatly enjoyed his company. We had a terrific experience coaching together on our son’s soccer team. He had a contagious personality and distinctive laugh. So sorry to hear of his passing.

Fred created laughter around him. I can so vividly remember an ode he wrote and sang at the baby shower. He was the life of the party. I’ve always enjoyed spending time at family gatherings. He’ll be missed. Love and prayers to you all. 💕
